Is existing boiler wrong?
I few years ago I purchased a foreclosed home with in-floor, radiant heat. However the heating bill has always been high and the whole system just doesn't seem right. I'm wondering if the boiler is undersized and causing high heating bills and poor operation.
According to online sites it appears my square footage requires 34,375 BTUs, however my EMB-9 Electro-Boiler is rated for 31,000 BTUs.
Also, my home is a slab home heated exclusively with in in floor heat and has 2 zones. However, an Electro-Boiler PDF suggests the EMB-9 the following uses...
1) lower level, 1 zone - warm floor, also has forced air heating system
2) garage residential 1,000 sq.ft. Max (my house is 1,2500 sq.ft.)
It seems to me I should have the EB-S-13 with 46,000 BTUs... Electro suggests this boiler is to be used as the only heating system for slab on grade.
Is my house fitted with the wrong boiler? Could it also be causing very high heating bills?
Thanks, in advance, for your help!!
